Stem Cell Transplant – Day 0 (My New Birthday)

Today was the day we’ve been working toward for the last 3 months. The BMT team wasn’t able to provide a time in the morning, so I tried to keep Lisa and my mom informed. Around 9 am, they told me it might be 11 am, or it might be later in the afternoon. Around 10 am, told me they would start pre-meds at 10:30 am. When the doctor’s arrived, they were very efficient, with the BONE MARROW Igloo cooler and IV lines in hand. They set up very quickly and Lisa arrived just as they were getting set up. They started the stem cells around 10:45 am, and everything was done by 11:00 am. Very anticlimactic… And now we wait.
